An IPA brewed here at Hill Farmstead during a week long visit (reunion) with our great friend Luc "Bim" Lafontaine during his brief return from Japan. This is an IPA brewed with citrus. We hope to visit Luc in Japan and brew the next beer in the series... Note: This beer is not to be confused with its predecessor "Friendship and Farewell" brewed, with Luc, at Dieu Du Ciel in 2012.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Growler from the brewery - consumed at the cabin in NH. Pours a somewhat hazy gold with a large, frothy white cap. The nose holds crisp tangerine, melon and citrus peel. Light sweet flavor with rindy citrus, light lime, pine, tangerine. Light in body with fine, massaging carbonation. Crisp finish with lightly tangy citrus, some bitter rinds, more tangerine. Charming.

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2013
750mL growler, pours a cloudy opaque golden with a small white head. Aroma is a classic Hill Farmstead nose, with citrus hops, floral notes, and crisp biscuity malts - extremely aromatic as usual from HF’s hoppy beers. Flavour is very dry, full of grassy hops, a little citrus zest, and a bit of floral notes, all held together by some nice crisp biscuity malt. Leaves a fairly high dry floral hop astringency on the finish. Extremely high drinkable and really well-balanced. Another great IPA from the masters.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours from a swingtop bottle a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium thick and foamy white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, hops and pine in the nose. Light, crisp body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and herbs. The finish is fruity with a lingering pineapple and hops aftertaste. Another winner from this brewery.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Growler... Cloudy yellow ale with a tiny, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a fantastic, juicy burst of citrus fruits accompanied by a lesser component of funky gym socks. Light to medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is moderately bitter, fruity and lightly tart. Lengthy, lightly bitter, tongue-numbing finish. My only gripe is that the body is too thin - a recurring problem with this brewery. Growler courtesy of landhoney!

On tap at Hill Farmstead during the Third Anniversary Party. Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Musk, citrus on the nose, faint yeast. Citrus with pungent musk. Lemon and wheat, light tartness. Citrus and musk linger before turning toward gentle pith.

[5255-20130426] Tap. Citrusy lemon spices and mild wood notes in the aroma. Hazy, pale orange tan body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Bitter citrus rind flavour has a long lemon pip aftertaste. Medium body is quite bitter. Tasty. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry and GregClow. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a large lasting foamy white head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma: Wow, there’s not much you can do to improve this aroma! Tons and tons of citrus hops along with some herbal notes. Flavour is so refreshing and tasty, with tons of hops and citrus -- it’s all hops really and I love it. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A superb IPA.
